Issues fixed[edit]

Refresh rate[edit]

Information Running the game in windowed mode uses your desktops resolution refresh rate.
Information You can force the refresh rate using a tool like Radeon Pro.

Fix Forcing refresh rate via DirectX registry entries[1]

  1. Open the Registry Editor (open the Start screen/Start menu, type regedit and press Enter).
  2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DirectDraw
  3. Create DWORD entry "ForceRefreshRate" and change its DECIMAL value to the refresh rate of your monitor.
Information 64-bit users will need to repeat this at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\DirectDraw as well.
Information This will force DirectX games to run in your monitor's refresh rate.

High input lag[edit]

Information High controller input lag is caused by the use of a non-standard refresh rate by the game. See Refresh rate for a fix.
